I've found that it works reasonably well if you sit down, but only when it has seen you stand before.
I think the problem is it needs to see the whole skeleton before it can see the skeleton.
At least the upper body/hips part. It always recognizes me even when my legs are obscured by the desk, but I have to step away far enough for it to see my general waist area.
@Bas:I've also found that as long as you move back far enough that you can move your arms without going out of the frame it will pick you up correctly but obviously it's only good if it's an app that only cares about the head and arms. I've seen that there's an adapter that makes the lens even wider angled than it already is. http://www.tomsguide.com/us/Kinect-Nyko-Zoom,news-11449.html
Come to think of it, this gadget might my useful for SlackmmasterK's workspace.
Looks like my own Kinect project made it onto Engadget. Unfortunately they took the video I made for Chris Pirillo and not one of my own... but oh well.
That link no goes directly to the Engadget home page ... I don't see your video on there. I have checked out yourYouTube videos, however, and am subscribed. Good work so far. Can't wait to see what's coming.
